Qx2 (All): SPAN - Drive Capacities

Created on: May 18, 2013

When the Qx2 is set to SPAN mode, all installed drives show up as one large single volume. The total size will depend on the drives installed; you can use drives of different capacities.

A span is an array (not RAID) in which the data is written sequentially across the drives. This combines the capacities of the drives, but it does not provide any performance or redundancy benefits
